This local spot hit our criteria for location and the menu looked promising. There wasn’t a kids menu, but when we entered the restaurant they let our kiddos know they had a super secret kids’ menu. Major kudos from parents who enjoy great food and...More

We had lunch here on two occasions. The first time my salad was fantastic. When I tried repeating it a few days later it wasn't as good. The other people in my party had mixed reviews. Nice atmosphere.

Restaurant was empty...should have been our first clue...appetizer was cold: we ordered queso (it was thin and runny;( it should have been hot), waitress was apologetic and took off our bill...food was average at best...would not come back..

Small selection on the menu but that was quickly forgotten when the delicious food was brought to the table. Out of a group of 20, I don't think anyone didn't enjoy their food! Great drink variety, too!

Between the food, the drinks and the bourbon tastings, there must be a hundred or more reasons why you must come here. My wife and I were staying just around the corner at the Hyatt and, on a wet and miserable February evening, went on...More

We were in Louisville for the weekend with a large group, 30. Most of the restaurants would not take reservations or they couldn’t seat us until after 9pm with a limited menu. Bistro 301 seated if at 7 pm and it was an amazing experience....More
